About the Meeting
Date: Apr 30–May 1, 2014
Location: Arlington, VA
This workshop is for recipients of 2012 and 2013 National Science Foundation awards from the Campus Cyberinfrastructure-Network Infrastructure and Engineering (CC-NIE) initiative. As with the initial workshop hosted in January 2013 by GENI and NSF for 2012 CC-NIE recipients, this event will allow in-person presentations and interactions between and among Principal Investigators and NSF program staff, addressing technical aspects affecting campus deployment and inter-campus operability, as well as general project findings. The event will enhance the overall program by fostering the exchange of ideas to inform best practices, and facilitate the identification of common milestones and achievements.
This workshop will further leverage NSF investment in network infrastructure, from national backbone efforts via vBNS and HPNC funding, international connectivity via IRNC support, experimental networking promotion via EIN, optical and regional network upgrades via ARRA projects, inter and intra-campus connectivity via EPSCOR research infrastructure improvements, and the CC-NIE initiative itself. By participating in a meeting of CC-NIE Principal Investigators, awardees and NSF program officials will have the opportunity to share findings and challenges, and work together to define solutions, create opportunities for interoperability between campus systems, identify scientific disciplines and NSF-funded research initiatives that could benefit from such enhanced network infrastructure, and describe best practices.
